2“My work is a contestation of art, of design and of crafts and of other institutional practices. As such it situates itself outside art, outside design and outside crafts as well. It is altogether all of these things and none of them. In our present time, art is mediated, impermanent, nonfunctional, visual, discursive and language based. My work is handmade, very permanent ( a particular characteristic of ceramic materials), tactile, functional in a practical way and based on a direct physical experience in its making and its appreciation.”
